The silence of nature is very real. It surrounds you, you can feel it

A great location situated in a beautiful region

La Montagnola lies high above Lake Bolsena, one of Europe's cleanest and clearest lakes. It is situated in Lazio, just across the border from both Tuscany and Umbria.

The surrounding nature is simple and pure with a mix of forest and agricultural land with mainly olive trees, vineyards and sheep. The area is extremely rich in Etruscian and Roman history. With mainly villages the pace of life is slow and personal. The food is natural, pure and delicious.

About Us

We have had a dream for many years

Creating a place where people can step back and relax. A context that gives people time and space for what they find essential. Time and space for recreation of body and mind. Not a "wellness hotel", not a meditation retreat. A place that simply feeds by peacefulness, pure, beautiful nature, simple and honest architecture, delicious local food and well chosen treatments and activities. After a ten year journey we have found this place: This is a dream come true for us. Being able to share such beauty of nature and such purity of rural Italy. Being able to share this unique place we are fortunate to call our home with our guests. Looking forward to welcoming you here!

She is also trained as a professional thai yoga massage therapist - adding a wonderful element to the relaxation options at the retreat.
